The Power To Put Patients First

The OrthoNJ Vision

More and more medical providers are being purchased by corporate entities and private-equity firms. That means profits and losses too-often dictate the treatment options, prices, and outcomes of patients, instead the treatment goals and needs of the patient.

OrthoNJ is the largest independent orthopedic group in New Jersey, comprising six distinct orthopedic divisions. Our dedication to independence means we are laser-focused on doing what is right, not what makes the most money.

That's The Power to Put Patients First.

Traumatic injury of still-developing bones can reshape a child's health as an adult. That's why it's vital your child gets the best care possible when they are injured. OrthoNJ is here to ensure your child heals the best way possible.

Your child's tendons, ligaments, and bones are designed to grow a certain way.
